What is Wear Red Canada?


Wear Red Canada is celebrated annually across Canada on February 13th to raise awareness about women’s heart health. Events are held across the country to serve as a reminder for all people in Canada, but especially women, to be mindful, curious, and proactive in the management of our heart health and wellness.

Heart disease is the number one killer of women worldwide and the leading cause of premature death in Canadian women. The good news is, 80% of a woman’s risk factors are within her control, and heart disease is largely preventable.
Wear Red Canada is proudly hosted by the Canadian Women's Heart Health Alliance (CWHHA) and powered by the Canadian Women's Heart Health Centre (CWHHC) with funding support from the University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation (UOHIF).
